Relay For Life events ~ community gatherings where teams and individuals camp out at a school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path.

Cancer survivors, caregivers, volunteers, and community members gather to kick off the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of the Mohawk Valley fundraising season.

Guests hear how the community has benefited from funds raised, honor cancer survivors, and learn how to “paint the world purple” to save lives from cancer. Teams can register by following the instructions listed below each specific event. Join us at a kickoff near you!
